BUSINESS ANGELS AND INVESTORS
We collaborate with business angels and investors whose interests go beyond pure financial speculation. People or entities that want to invest in innovative startups engaged in the development of high value-added products and services in growing market segments in Italy and abroad.
Many traditional forms of investment - in real estate and mutual funds, for example - are losing attractiveness because the returns are extremely low and the likelihood of ending up with near-zero returns net of inflation is ever increasing.
In many Northern European countries, the U.S., Canada, and some Middle Eastern and Asian countries, the trend toward investing - directly or through specialized vehicles - in the venture capital of startups is growing very rapidly.
The reason is simple: if the startup succeeds in delivering on its promises, the investment made can give returns of even more than 10 to 20 times the capital invested, returns that no "classic" financial investment has ever given (even in particularly fruitful years) or will be able to give in the future, with the prospect of negligible returns if not negative rates.
Don't necessarily think about the history of big startups like Facebook, Twitter or Google: reality is made up mostly of startups that are often completely unknown in Italy but that have created, from scratch or almost from scratch, products and services that have met with the favor of millions of users worldwide.
With Startalia we mainly target small and medium-sized private investors who want to diversify their investments, by preferring over classic financial instruments to engage in the real economy, in an enterprise made up of people, with solid ideas and projects, which can create development and employment in its territorial context.
Our startup creation and incubation process is based on methods and tools refined and validated in more than 30 years of project and entrepreneurial experience. We have a twofold goal: to increase the quality of the project and its execution, and to drastically reduce the risk of failure.
In short, we manage to significantly break down two crucial aspects of startups' survival and growth in the early years, benefiting the startup and investors.
